and the united states. i'm here at santiago and the state media is blasting out messages to tell people to prepare and evacuate where they expect to see storm surge which could wipe away homes and boats and people. cubans are taking this very seriously. we are seeing people tie down their roofs. we see people loading up on supplies. this is a very poor country. they lack resources. they have a lot of experience. they dealt with hurricanes over the years. they are still recovering from hurricane sandy here. it ripped through this city of 500,000 people causing a lot of damage. while they have a lot of experience, no one has seen a hurricane like this in generation. we see president raul castro warning people they have to be ready because of the powerful storm. it will have a major impact.

means it could lead to runoff. you go thursday into the latter portion of the week and it hugs the eastern seaboard, the carolinas will get rough weather with matthew and the northeast from saturday into sunday. this storm system will bring in potentially not only large waves along the coast, but heavy rainfall. guys. >> we have to watch this closely for several days. the supreme court has rejected a request to rehear the case on the president's immigration plan. back in june, the eight-member court upheld the ruling that would protect undocumented immigrants from deportation. they decided to wait for a ninth justice. this is a victory for the 26 states that challenged the president's executive actions.
the justices also refused to consider an appeal by the washington redskins challenging a law that bars offensive tradema trademarks. redskins are fighting over cancellation of the logos. the team says it violates the first amendment. hillary clinton slamming wells fargo over the fake account scandal. she says the bank is a bully. we will explain when we get an early start on your money next.
takes place. mike pence and tim kaine shake hands. this could be a serious policy discussion we get at 9:00 eastern time. mike pence as governor of indiana goes into the debate suffering a loss in the federal appeals court. a three-judge panel overruled the attempt to block syrian families from resettling in indiana. the justices say there is no evidence that syrian terrorists are posing as refugees or syrian refugees have committed acts of terror in the united states. the judges call the suggestion nightmare speculation. governor pence says this is not discriminatory and aims to protect the citizens of indiana. u.s. suspended talks with russia over the syrian cease-fire. josh earnest says russia lost credibility by making a series of commitments without keeping them. the syrian regime allies bombing
locations into submission. we have michelle kosinski with more. >> reporter: it is interesting with the evolution of this. we have heard strong language from the white house describing russia's behavior in syria. calling it barbaric. and this is a real test to see how willing they are to live up to commitments and willing to fight groups like isis and al nusra. after the bombing of the convoy after the cease-fire, that raised the question hasn't russia already failed that test? the white house's response was yes, they have. the white house didn't want to close the door as they put it to a cease-fire because they see that as the best possibility in the near term to get the aid to
the people there who are suffering. then the question became how far does russia have to go for the u.s. to close that door and now we see the answer. the u.s. has closed the door to those negotiations. listen. >> i think everybody's patience with russia has run out. russia. they've also spent a great deal of credibility in making a series of commitments without a clear indication they were not committed to follow them. they have been reduced to either acting unilaterally or supporting the iranians in dropping bunker-busting bombs on civilian hospitals in aleppo. it is outrageous. >> reporter: now when you ask the white house what happens next and what about the humanitarian need in syria? the white house seems to put the
onus back on russia. russia has a lot to lose. russia is extremely isolated right now. sounding like the possibility is there if russia wants to come back to the table. that may be a possibility. the white house is not saying that in so many words. instead, the president is weighing a range of options. john and christine. >> thank you, michelle. the situation on the ground in syria is deteriorating. senior diplomatic editor nic robertson is live in turkey. >> reporter: good morning, christine. a bunker-busting bomb dropped on the hospital in aleppo. 275,000 civilians live in that area. according to the u.n., they are down to 29 doctors now.
the medical situation there is utterly precarious. the bunker-busting bomb dropped by the syrians and backed by the russians was the third strike on the hospital in a few days. what is happening is a huge international worry. now the last hope that really was on the table, the russians could be convinced to use their pressure and influence on assad to back off on targeting civilians in aleppo. what appears to be happening right now is the will of the rebels to hold out in what is a barbaric siege situation is being tested at the moment. so without other alternatives on the table now to bring about a cease-fire and bring about the humanitarian aid delivery, the u.n. is worried.
you have to see how saudi arabia is reacting to this who has been an ally of the united states, but pushing the united states to put more troops on the ground. how is turkey going to react? they wanted a more robust response. we are entering uncharted terrorist. thank you. time for an early start on your money. dow futures are higher after the small drop. we started the final quarter of the year. stock markets in europe risie sharply. look at oil. it's down. a sign of unease this morning. ahead of britain's exit from the eurozone. the pound is the lowest point against the dollar since 1985. good for travelers booking a trip there. hillary clinton slapping wells fargo for the fake account
